Crud! Hadn't used NFC on my camera in a few weeks and found out tonight when I wanted to transfer a photo from my camera to phone that PlayMemories Mobile is no more. Imaging Edge Mobile is the replacement app.

Big problem, for anyone using an older phone. I have a Sony Z3v phone that works well, does what I want, etc... but isn't supported for Android updates anymore and the latest version I can get is 5.1.1. When I tried to install Imaging Edge Mobile it said my phone wasn't supported (and I've confirmed that the minimum Android is 6.0). Grrrr ...

So, now I cannot use NFC from various Sony cameras to my Sony phone anymore.

Any suggestions on a replacement app to bridge this problem for me until I upgrade to a newer phone (which I don't plan on doing anytime soon)?

BTW - I checked, and the 'send to smartphone' option on the cameras don't work either.

Have you looked for an old version of playmemories mobile on the web that will still work?
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

Hi. Thanks. No, I haven't. Not sure if that will work or not. I had an older version installed but when I tried to use it the app wouldn't open / work correctly. It displayed a message that the app was no longer (something) and to install the new version. So, even if I was to find another copy I think it would get blocked again?
